its a bitch to get back in there.

im assuming you mean full replacement pieces for the tail lights.

First off, if you have a mach 1000 stereo you need to unbolt the subs from the trunk floor and from the amp rack.

next you gotta unscrew the upholstery nuts.

after that, pull the upholstery forward so you can get behind there.

Be careful behind the drivers side tail light, that is where the fuel cutoff system is, after working there it is good just to give the red buttin a little push to make sure it diddnt trip.

there are 4 nuts holding the tail light to the car, gotta figure out which ios the right socket size, it helps if you have a deep socket, because those screws stick pretty far through

undo all 4, then carefully pull out the tail light, have a clean paper towel or plastic bag handy and twist out the rubber light socket grips and lay them in the bag . But Before you do this get a sharpie or something and mark 1,2,3,4 on the back of the lights and again on the back of the tail light so you know which bulb goes where.

then inset them in the new tail light, align the new tail lights holes with the holes in the car and slide it straight in, then put the nuts back on and put the upholstery nuts back on.



thats really about it.

it's really actually as simple as jack described. the 4 nuts are covered by the trunk liner. Remove the nuts and then just tug and it should pop right out. Takes all of 5 minutes.

looks like a additional adaptor is required for these to tap into your stock wiring harness from those pics, I would contact AM Customer Service and ask to speak to someone if they can verify if that verified, or maybe AMNick in the AM Section could be of assistance.

I'm not gonna lie, I thought they were going to look horrible on a mustang and laugh quietly to myself, but they don't look bad. is that a cobra wing?
edit: y do you have a Volkswagen license cover? lol

nice GT man, loving it all but those lights actually... nice rims, side scoops, love the R Wing.. but the stock lights or smoked would have been the right choice.
